Apple Watch Series 3 with LTE support now official, starts at $329

Want to take calls using a watch, without using any phone? Here’s for you. The all-new Apple Watch Series 3 with LTE built-in support. We have now the privilege to go on places, just using this Apple watch.

For example, we can use the Apple Watch when we have running exercise, and your iPhone is at home, it is still contactable. Note that the number should be the same as the iPhone that you’re using. Here’s something that you should know. All of us are using SIM card for text and call plus the antenna underneath the phone, right? In Apple Watch Series 3, the display will act as the antenna and an electronic SIM, also known as e-SIM that’s 1% the size of a regular SIM. They can be used for both receiving and transmitting.

This doesn’t stop here. Siri can now speak out loud in using the Apple Watch Series 3, even if the iPhone is far behind on your location. Speaking of location, we can now use maps to get directions. For music, we can now stream a whooping 40 million songs using the Apple Watch at our wrist. We can have the access to all our favorite music or listen to any Apple radio music station or even ask Siri to find the perfect track.

The design has the same look as the Series 2 with water resistant, of course but the difference are the colors available with new straps. Apple-designed W2 chip that delivers 85% faster Wi-Fi coverage and 50% more efficient on Wi-Fi and Bluetooth. Under the hood, there’s a new S3 dual-core that brings 70% faster performance with apps opening more quickly. Another new feature is the barometric altimeter that enables distance climbed, especially in workouts. Lastly, the battery life, which something that we worry, however, Apple claims that the Series 3 offers an all-day battery life, up to 18 hours of continuous usage.
